New Nikon D3200 camera and 28mm f/1.8 lens

Nikon today announced their new entry level D3200 DSLR camera. The D3200 is the successor to the popular D3100 camera and now includes a super high resolution 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor. Full HD (1080p) video recording with full time autofocus (AF) is supported, and for capturing action, a 4 frames per second high-speed continuous shooting mode is available.

Like the new D4, Nikon is also taking the D3200 “wireless.” With the new optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, you can wirelessly send images to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, preview an image before shooting and control the camera remotely.

The Nikon D3200 will be available in both black and red and will be available April/May depending on your country. Price will be around $699.95 for a kit with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens. The optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter will be available at a price of around $59.95.

Together with the announcement of the new D3200, Nikon also announced a new wide-angle fixed focal length lens with a large maximum aperture. The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G is a 28mm wide-angle full frame lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8. It uses Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat to prevent ghosting and flare. With it's ability to resolve high resolution images with amazing sharpness and clarity, the 28 f/1.8G is an ideal companion for the company's new 36MP Nikon D800 and D800E DSLRs.

The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G lens will be available at the end of May for the suggested retail price of $699.95.
